Great write up once again Cliff. I am so glad to be somewhat up to speed today, since last June when you all discussed and debated this I had no clue. Back then I was beginning to work my way through '69, until I realized a proper study of Dark Star should begin in '68. I too have listened to winter/spring '68 numerous times and never tire of doing so.

Before I present my thoughts regarding the cut Spanish jam, I have a silly question about the drumming. There are times (especially the fabulous snare in the Spanish jams) when I swear I can only hear one drummer, so I assumed that Mickey is shaking the maracas, or is my hearing out of whack?

They sound like Rattlesnakes!

I once thought the maracas were being played by Pigpen, however LIA believes it's Mickey and I think he's right.
